Sunday 22 December - Flaneurs

A lazy day today. It was drizzling when we first went out but the weather improved and there were patches of blue sky later on.  First order of business was to buy dinner of roast chicken, roast potatoes, fresh asparagus and fungus - oyster, chanterel and shitaki. Desert was a couple of pastries from Diva et Chocolats.
We go into Diva et Chocolats for the excellent baguettes but seem to come out with patisseries as well.
The mairie has set the free roundabouts for the kids at Batignolles. There weren't too many kids there so when the ride finished there was a mad scramble for a different place rather having to go back to the end of the line.
At the end of the ride the many parents would come on and move their kids from one vehicle to another
The parents job was to retrieve their kids and install them in a new vehicle.  With few kids around those that were there could have several rides in a row.
We walked around Batignolles and through the Square back to the apartment to sample some newly acquired cheeses, camembert, langres, emmental. All very good.

This evening marked the first time we have cooked here - fried fungus.
